After proving hugely popular during the Rugby World Cup in Japan, the Herald's live player ratings interactive is back for the blockbuster cricket test series between the Black Caps and Australia.

Hundreds of thousands of ratings were made by fans during the All Blacks' Cup campaign in September and October, and now you can have your say on how every Black Cap player performs in the Boxing Day test at the MCG - by rating every player's performance between 1 and 10 on your computer, mobile phone or other device.

Here's how to use the tool.
